7:08 pm
this routight to try act passed parts of legislatures in several states. it didn't just breeze through. if you are dying you should be able to dtry something. >> it holds at 85 percent. this is a no brainer for people, john. everyone has a close friend who has suffered or died from cancer or other permnal illnesst. people know when mortality hangs in the balance they ought to have the right to try these potentially life saving drugs. no question. >> you heard about this new drug no idea if it would work you went to the study and they said what happened? >> this study was started with 12 boys in the united states. he qualified because he was ambulatory. austin was not already

7:11 pm
>> they don't argue. >> they don't appear to see that every day that goes by is a loss of function for these boys. i can't count the number we have lost. they are now using the ability to use his arm. 2 and a half years of a fully completely space there isn't a single side effect. t talk about the fdi protecting you. there is no off target effect. >> the doctors will argue shoco see we it first? if we go off and take the drug it won't be sure. >> they are immoral at this point. when you are talking about patients with a erm terminal illness we know what will happen if they get a placebo. this is an immoral way to test for efficacy of the drugs.
